The LS-PAC MODELS Center's STEM Speaker Series Presents: Dr. Isiah Warner - "Mentoring Underrepresented Students in
Good mentors can have a tremendous influence on students’ lives and career trajectories by providing them with the skills and confidence needed to achieve their goals and challenging them to reach their highest potential. When Dr. Isiah Warner began as a chemistry professor at LSU in 1992, there had never been more than three African-Americans in chemistry at one time. Now, LSU is ranked first in the nation in the production of African-Americans with PhDs in chemistry, with between 25 and 30 African-American students in chemistry each year. In addition, more than half of Dr. Warner’s graduate students are women. Dr. Warner is the recipient of numerous awards including the CASE Louisiana Teacher of the Year Award, the LSU Distinguished Faculty Award, the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring, the ACS Stanley C. Israel Regional Award for Advancing Diversity in Chemical Sciences, and the 2016 SEC Professor of the Year, to name just a few. Join us as Dr. Warner shares his perspective about how his own mentors influenced his success and provides advice for both students and mentors about how they can maximize the success of their mentoring relationships.
